From its original role as ancient army training fields to its present-day identity as one of the city’s most desirable neighbourhoods, the Campo Marzio is the best place to get lost in Rome. Gorgeous Renaissance and Baroque palazzos line the streets, and are filled with enticing boutiques and food shops. By day, Rome’s best-dressed denizens criss-cross its streets in a fashionable parade of errands, occasionally pausing to
look fabulous in gorgeous piazzas like San Lorenzo in Lucina. Campo Marzio can be a bit of a sleeper after aperitivi hour (21:00), so visit by day and experience the pulse of daytime Rome.
Basically a very large square where there are often evening events and buskers. An obelisk from the circus massimo is in the centre. At the top of Corso, the main shopping street. Go due west over the bridge to the Vatican... More
Basically a very large square where there are often evening events and buskers. An obelisk from the circus massimo is in the centre. At the top of Corso, the main shopping street. Go due west over the bridge to the Vatican museum and due east to the villa borgese and park. Turn around stop for the 116 and 117 electric buses, which are a must way of getting around through the narrow street. A great centre for someone who likes to walk.
